Here’s the statement from the Patrick McHenry campaign sent via its email newsletter:
Keever Sidesteps Obama Endorsement
Trying to distance herself from the failed policies of President Barack Obama, congressional candidate Patsy Keever recently dodged a question about whether or not she would endorse the leader of her party.
According to Jon Ostendorff of the Asheville Citizen-Times:
“Keever’s campaign is the only one that did not answer the question with a clear yes-or-no type response.”
Her refusal to endorse President Obama, who has added $5.5 trillion to the national debt and been unable to get unemployment under 8% for the last 41 consecutive months, may come as a surprise to many of her supporters after she told the Mountain Xpress on April 26th: “I want to be part of President Obama’s team.”
